Liam Payne wants to go where 1D never went before, thanks to VR

Liam Payne is set to perform in his first-ever live VR concert on Wednesday.

(CNN)Liam Payne says he has been to about 26% of the world, and in one night, he's hoping to add a few percentage points to that total.

On Wednesday, Payne, a former member of the global sensation One Direction, will hit the stage solo for a concert that his fans from places across the globe can attend live via virtual reality.
It's a first for MelodyVR, a company that launched in May, but Payne is excited to throw his weight behind the emerging concept.
